If I could have any job in the world, you know, if I had my druthers and stuff, I think I'd like to be a professionally paid podcaster and writer.

Actually, to be honest, that's not true. Not at all. If the druthers were truly mine, then frankly, I'd prefer to just skip the whole job thing altogether and be one of those people who are independently wealthy. At that point I could write and podcast and not have to worry about being paid for it.

So yeah, I need to get started on that already. Plans need to be made. Plans that when they come to fruition, I'm there at the other side one flipping independently wealthy dude. That shouldn't be too hard. Right?

Okay, so let's see...

Step One: Get a great big bunch of money.

Step... well, that's pretty much it.

Alright then, I have the plan. Now all that's left for me to do is to just get out there and do it. I gotta go out there and get that money. Legally, of course. I don't condone thievery.

And really, I don't need all that much... money, that is

I don't think I could live an extravagant lifestyle with a giant house, pool, butler, maid, driver, and all that. I mean, it sounds exhausting. All I need is just enough to get the things I want, and then, of course, have enough left so that I don't have to worry about money ever again. You know, for like paying the bills and stuff.

Okay, so just enough to get what I want... which is what, exactly?

Well... a slightly larger house. We're currently living in a relatively tiny house. So yeah, something just a bit bigger. A place where everyone could have their own room and we'd have an actual basement. A finished basement where I could build my studio to do all the podcasting and stuff. 

Plus, we need more than one bathroom. Five people, one bathroom, don't get me started.

Oh, and a garage, that's something we don't have. A two-car garage for our two new, paid for, reliable cars. Maybe a four-door sedan and some sort of big SUV or truck for the really snowy days. Nothing fancy or too expensive, I don't need all the bells and whistles. But it would certainly be nice to drive something reliable for a change.

And hey, back to the basement, I'd want to get a drum set, something I haven't owned for two decades.

Oh, and a nice, big, TV. Three of them.

But that's it. That's all I want.

Well, my wife is gonna want some stuff. I'll have to make sure I get with her and get a list.

And of course, I'm sure the kids will want some stuff too.

But that's everything. That's all we want or need. Just that.  

Well, that and the ability to pay any bill that might surface, to pay the way through college for my three kids, and then still have enough left over for whatever life throws my way.

That's all. Nothing else.

I mean, that's not too much to ask. Is it?

Okay then. So now I know what I want, and I have a plan. I just have to do it.

Or I could just focus on the writing and the podcasting, appreciate what I have, surround myself in the love of my family, and just live life.

So yeah, I'll go back to my first answer. If I have to work for a living, then I'd like to do it writing or podcasting.

Or as a Space Ranger.

Wow, choosing a career is tough.
